Be a Part of the Great Dog Day Event
Join us on Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, for the Third Annual Dog Days 5K & 2 Mile Walk! This is a great event for the whole family that benefits the Hub City Service Dogs program.
The 5K and Two-Mile routes will both start and finish at Kamper Park (1700 E Hardy St. in Hattiesburg), at 7:30 a.m. This is a pup-friendly race, with water stations for both runners and canines along the route. All dogs are required to be on a fixed leash. The route will take participants through the Avenues of Hattiesburg, a quaint neighborhood with a shaded path. Community volunteers, as well as clients of Hub City Service Dogs, will be there to cheer you along the way! The race will end at Kamper Park, with a post-race festival for both race participants and their pets.
Registration will be available until Aug. 25 at $25 per participant. The price will increase to $30 the day of the race. Registration includes a technical shirt if registered by Aug. 15. Medals will be given to the top male and female overall in the 5K & 2 Mile event, with and without a dog. Additionally, awards will be given in the following age divisions (with and without dogs):
